=We had our 4-H Foods projects this week, and these were three of the favorite recipes!

Easy Pizza Roll Ups

Spread a tortilla with spaghetti sauce and place on your desired toppings (pepperoni, meat, veggies, etc). Cover with cheese and microwave on high for 40 seconds. Carefully roll it up. Cool for 5 minutes, then slice into roll ups/ pinwheels if desired. (The kids just mostly ate them still rolled up like a burrito, but they would make a pretty presentation sliced!)

Quick Mini Chocolate Cheesecakes

To make 2 dozen:

¼ c. chocolate chips

½ c. part-skim ricotta cheese

12 small chocolate or vanilla cookies

100% fruit jam, such as raspberry

Melt chocolate chips in a glass measuring cup: microwave 1 minute on medium, stir, and then cook on medium 20 more seconds at a time until chips are melted. Combine with ricotta. Spoon 1 teaspoon of the mixture on each cookie and top with ¼ teaspoon of the jam.
